You Are Infinite

You are amazing. You can be anything that you choose to be.
You are infinite. Your beliefs define the possibility and potential of your existence. Your actions create powerful ripples that shape the world around you.
You are blue, green, red, mangenta and brown. You are that vaguely orange-ish color found on the side of a old, sun-faded box of Wheaties.
You are wondering what sort of trippy drug I’m on, and a part of you is rationalizing this message away. A part of you is saying that you are NOT infinite, because of blah blah blah. A part of you is thinking, “Erik, dude! Life is hard, I’m doing my best, stop trying to talk like you’re Richard F’ing Simmons or something.”
...
Our society is structured to keep us tied down by the doubting, rational parts of our brains. The underlying rule of our society is that if you want to eat and have shelter, then you need to get a job and do what you’re told. The rule is that if you want to engage in creative, self-actualizing work then you need to jump through a LOT of hoops like go to college for 10 years, engage in a risky entrepreneurial venture, or resolve yourself to a life of ramen noodles and artistic struggle.
What I’m telling you is, it doesn’t have to be this way.
You don’t need to change society in order to find a creative, joyful and self-actualized vocation. You need to change yourself. And this change begins when you take one small, fearless step forward into the infinite.
